The Largest Water Jets

      3/16/1999

Swedish-based Kamewa, a subsidiary of the Marine Division of Vickers plc, has entered into an agreement with FastShip Inc., from the USA, to design and develop the world's largest ever water jets. The state-of-the-art Kamewa water jets are to be developed for the first four vessels to be introduced as part of a revolutionary new ocean cargo transport system which will offer a premium seven-day door-to-door North Atlantic transportation network for high-value time sensitive goods (HVTS). The core of the FastShip system is a fleet of patented high-speed ships representing a quantum leap in hull design and propulsion systems. The design synergy enables the ships to run at speeds of 36-40 knots and maintain those speeds in rough seas.
With an inlet diameter of 3.25 m (10.6 ft) the Kamewa "FastShip" water jets will be twice the size and power output of the largest units currently in operation, and will provide 50MW of propulsive power per unit. Each "FastShip" vessel will have five Kamewa water jets and each water jet will
be driven by acro-derivative, marinized jet engines enabling the vessels to achieve speeds of up to 40 knots.
